HOWEVER, tonight as I pulled them all out of the bag to wash, I took a look at the receipt and noticed the first shirt listed was $6.99!! What??? I couldn't believe that. I just knew they had to have made a mistake. There was no way I'd pay that much for any shirt. I went back through all the tags I'd just thrown into the trash, and sure enough - there was a tag for $6.99!! And I have no idea which shirt it even was. So all my careful sleuthing for bargains just went out the window paying that much for one shirt. When I checked out, I noticed the amount was more than it I thought it was going to be, but just figured I got a few more than I thought I had. Oh, well. I'll have to be more careful next time. Any way, it was fun and I came home with a lot of cotton fabric. Cutting them up will keep me busy for several evenings.
That was the fun part......today was the not so fun part. It was my first physical therapy visit. Those people are so nice at Therapy South. It was all great right up to the last part where they put the electrodes on my foot and then put this wrap on it. The wrap got VERY cold and VERY tight. When he took it off, I could then see what was so uncomfortable. The little plastic pieces that hook to the electrodes were nearly embedded into the swollen part of my ankle. I hope next time they can somehow put those little plastic pieces on the outside of the wrap. I remember when I was going to PT back in November, the cold therapy at the end was just the worst!
I told Robert about my knee, and how I really needed it replaced. He agreed that I better get it done before the end of the year. He said he if I would work really hard on the foot exercises at home, I could come twice a week rather than 3 times, and that would save enough visits for me to come back after the knee surgery since Medicare only pays for X-number of days of PT in one year. I'm really hoping I can get this done. I'll bet the surgery schedules will explode during December with everyone trying to get their surgeries done. I better get mine scheduled way ahead of time. Robert is going to give me names of good knee doctors since I forgot to ask my doctor who he would recommend.
And speaking of exercises, I bet get started on mine so I can get to bed.
